We returned for a nice Sunday night dinner at Kubota Restaurant. Service was very good. We enjoyed a tofu salad. It was very good and plentiful size for two. For our appetizer we had gyoza. We also had their tasty oxtail tongue. Both were good....More

Kubota has better ambiance than some of the other Japanese restaurants in the Japantown neighborhood. The food was pretty good - especially liked the salad. But did not knock my socks off. I think my experience was shadowed because it was so chaotic at lunchtime...More
